Best Rotisserie Chicken, Uptown (2008)
The chicken at EL CONDE isn't much to look at, but I dare you to find better anywhere on the island (Manhattan, that is). This Dominican joint specializes in steaks, but I can't resist getting chickencrisp-skinned, garlicky, and salty in optimum proportion. And the staff is just plain friendly. For fishetarians, there's an excellent octopus salad.
